Wildwood Lake Water Testing

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Engage in an outdoor field study at Wildwood Lake where you will learn how to take a scientific water sample in the field and test the sample to determine levels of cyanobacteria, nitrate, phosphate, pH, dissolved oxygen, and temperature of the water. Also examine samples from the floor bed of the water bodies to see if you can identify macroinvertebrates and then learn about what those organisms can indicate about the health of the ecosystem. Learn about the precious nature of the limited fresh water supply here on Earth and engage in a conversation about local ecosystems.
